We are offering you an original way to cook insects with our chocolate truffle with mealworms. Put your apron on and get ready for this exceptional dessert.

Cooking edible insects has never been so easy (and delicious!)


For preparing your mealworms truffles, 20 minutes of preparation will be needed; followed by approximately a half an hour of resting time.

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

  • 165 gr of dark chocolate
  • 8.5 cl of liquid cream
  • 30 gr of mealworms (1 box of Original mealworms)
  • 2 cl of Grand Marnier
  • 20 g of unsweet powder cocoa

Let's go in the kitchen

In a hot pan, cook the mealworms in the Grand Marnier until the alcohol is completely evaporated. Be careful of not burning yourself!


In a pot, heat the liquid cream until the boiling point. Then, add the chocolate in small pieces. You should obtain a smooth mix. You can now add your mealworms.


Let resting the preparation on a baking tray in the refrigerator for 3 minutes. Once the paste is cold, cut it in small squares, roll them into bowls with your hands. Coat them with cocoa powder. Your edible insects' truffles are ready!


You can also coat your truffles with mealworms, coconut or dried fruits depending on your taste.

Did you know? The origin of the truffle

In 1895, a chocolate maker out of chocolate, decide to create a recipe with liquid cream and cocoa. Chocolate truffle was born!

Well, we think that, at this time, he didn't think about adding some delicious, nutritious and crispy insects!
